This question gives you a new rule: the Yandells owned the mill. You should draw that:
The Yandells can only have one building, because the Williamses need more buildings than the Yandells (see the setup for a full explanation). So only two groups are left.
Consider how this affects the existing rules. M was in rule 2. The rule in full was that F can’t go with I or M.
F and I are left, and they can’t go together. Only two groups are left. So one of F and I goes in each group:
This type of deduction comes from focussing on one rule at a time, and thinking through the implications.
Now let’s look at the remaining rules. Rule 3 says that the Yandells need the inn or the Trents need the stable. Since the Yandells can’t take more buildings, we need to give the Trents the stable:
Finally, the Williamses need another building so that they have more buildings than the Yandells. Therefore, we need to give them the granary:
Usually, the final deduction is the right answer, and that’s true on this question. D is CORRECT.
